Ah, brunch. The perfect combination of sweet and savory with a particular temporal flexibility that all other meals lack. Got a lot of stuff to do? Go early at normal breakfast time. Stayed out too late the night before? No problem. In college Sunday brunch was the meal everyone looked forward to; the only redeeming thing about the one day of the week when people were most likely to do their homework. Brunch is not really a French thing, but as with other food trends (see: burgers, cupcakes, coffee shops) it appears to be catching on. So when I met up with a visiting high school friend this weekend, the logical activity was to check out one such restaurant.
Eggs & Co is located on a tiny side street in the swanky Saint Germain neighborhood. Once seated in the cozy dining mezzanine, the only choice you have to make is how you want your eggs. I went with the only word I recognized: omelette. As per the brunch menu, it was served with potatoes and a mixed salad, followed by fruit salad and a pancake which, unfortunately, was incredibly dense and impermeable to maple syrup.
The bottom line: good ambiance but the food is overpriced. However, Eggs & Co has the distinction of serving brunch every day - most restaurants only serve it on weekends.
